Youth Entrepreneurs Engaging in the Digital Economy


Understanding to what degree young entrepreneurs in South and South-East Asia rely on digital financial services and digital business solutions and how they are benefitting from them can improve youth entrepreneurship and financial inclusion.

The United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and Youth Co:Lab - co-led by UNDP and Citi Foundation - are happy to present a new report on Youth Entrepreneurs Engaging in the Digital Economy.

This report delivers an up-to-date regional picture of trends related to youth entrepreneurship and financial inclusion using Findex and Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) data, as well as qualitative insights from an online survey of 64 young innovation driven entrepreneurs connected to Youth Co:Lab.
